countries are not responding quickly enough. just today the head of the cdc said the world has a lot of work to do to prevent ebola from becoming the next aids epidemic. >> chris lawrence, thank you. doctors in our area say they're not waiting for a possible outbreak here before taking necessary precautions. we were there today as inofa fairfax hospital held a drill. doctors, nurses, and county medics all discussed how to transfer a potential patient. they take the drills so seriously they use undercover patients. so none of the patients actually knows it's a drill and take every precautionary step along the way. >> each time we do a drill, we learn more and more. and find even more opportunities to make our system better. >> the hospital also has an ebola cart on stand by with all the supplies needed to treat a patient without contracting the disease. >> tonight, the news 4 i-team and many others waiting for test

southern california just came to an end. it involved a s.w.a.t. team and a mixed martial arts fighter who calls himself mayhem. he live tweeted the whole thing. and as mckayla medina reports, it's not the man's first run-in with the law. >> with his head tilted up and bare-chested, the mma fire known as mayhem created quite a bit of mayhem on his quiet street. that's the sound that led to his surrendering this afternoon. it started when deputies attempted to serve a bench warrant and the situation escalated into a s.w.a.t. call. >> we set up a perimeter around the house and we have attempted to make contact with mr. miller mp. >> friends of the 33-year-old arrived at the scene after miller took to twitter, saying, i need to tell everyone about the absolute waste of resources outside my house. they have threatened me with a dog bite. he tweeted out for followers to
come to watch. >> it's very voyeuristic, he gave the address, how could i not come by? >> he was arrested on burglary charges after allegedly breaking into and vandalizing a church. authorities found him in the church naked. two years later he's refusing to come out of his home. deputies even using twitter to try to communicate with him. in this day and age and the day of social media, just another method of communication. >> jason mayhem miller had several outstanding warrants, including one for domestic violence and another for stalking. a 29 mile stretch of toll lanes could open as early as december. they were scheduled to open early next year, but construction is ahead of schedule. the lanes run -- it's in virginia, by the way, from edcell road on 395 to stratford
county. drivers can use them and pay a toll based on congestion, or they can use the lanes for free in a carpool of three or more. >> nice blue skies in those object approxima from today. that's about to change. >> big time. one thing, i said that the guidance was looking better. some of the latest stuff coming in. one thing that's not going to change are the clouds. we're going to stick that in the forecast for saturday and sunday, keep it around with just some occasional showers, which you'll see and i'll detail the time of that in just a moment. first thing tomorrow morning, the pavement looking dry. temperatures in the low 60s. for the afternoon, also stay cool, roads looking wet. fog will start developing that will go right into saturday morning. not so good for the afternoon/evening commute.
you can see what we're dry across the area. showers have faded fast and we have quiet times around i-81. that's the location tomorrow that some of our first showers will start showing up in the afternoon, after about 2:00 or so. let's go straight to future weather. early tomorrow morning, again, overcast. into 2, 3, 4:00 tomorrow, to haguerstown, showers will start moving in. nothing too heavy at first, but as it gets later, a few locations with moderate and heavier rains. 9:00 p.m., there we are, baltimore game, taking on the royals, the o's, there could be a delay or a rain-out. saturday 5:00 a.m., rain starts moving out. so i think we could get a break, maybe some sunshine with the system further south for saturday afternoon, evening and much of sunday right now, until the rain starts moving back in
very, very late sunday. so high temperatures tomorrow anywhere from 61 degrees to the north frederick, to close to 70 in fredericksburg, 68 degrees around pax river. any showers, best chance after 2:00 tomorrow. but again, you want to be ready. pack the umbrella. here we are with a look at your forecast. we're going to stay in the 60s in the weekend. i don't think we'll tap out over the 70-degree mark until we hit monday right now. and as far as tuesday goes, it's looking like the warmest day out of the workweek. right now wednesday we could get strong trhunderstorms, see high winds. that means the possibility of isolated power outages. right now, your wettest period will be friday night into saturday morning. again, the weekend upcoming, looking like it could be very salvageable, with a lot of clouds around.
this is the xfinity sports desk, brought to you by xfinity, your home for the most live sports. a whole lot of people who saw the cubs tonight hope they'll be able to see them deep into may. >> yes. >> that would be nice. >> the potential is there, the leadership is in place, and the caps season is finally here. unfortunately tonight they couldn't get the win for their new coach here at home.
the caps also celebrating their 40th anniversary. some legends participating in the ceremonial puck drop. good start for the team. canadiens turnover, caps taking full advantage. rookie burk osky with his first nhl goal. caps up 1-0. third period, habs on the attack. a third goal of the season there. game tied at one. later third period. more pressure in montreal. long pass to bourque who fires up the shot and it appears to go in, but if you take a look t hits the post and comes right back out. no goal. then a shoot-out we go. now tied at two in the shoot-out. needing a stop from gallagher. can't get that one. caps battle hard, but the habs get the win, 2-1 in the shoot-out. caps fall.
new coach barry trotz laments a missed opportunity. >> you had them on the floor and you couldn't knock them out. give them credit, they were resilient, the canadiens, and as i say, they sort of crawled their way back into the game. and full marks to them. it's just that we dominated so much in the first period. i think they woke up a little bit. obviously some things we could have done better to give ourselves a better chance to win a hockey game, got to work on it. >> we talk about a fresh start here. caps led the nhl regular season in shootouts. and here they are again, game one in a shoot-out. >> but this one doesn't turn out so well. >> the caps will play the bruins next on saturday. to the diamond now, game one of alcs starts up tomorrow at camden yards. as the o's took batting practice today, there was a familiar face back on the field.

lackluster. all that fighting and debating last night. >> you want to start a new fight? >> i don't. >> hold on, i got to clean some stuff up. all you people getting over me for disrespecting her, when i talked about i'd rather here from her about football. what i meant was, when you talking about the mood in the locker room and i said, i'd rather hear from them. what i meant was, as it regards what football players feel and think, let me here that from somebody who's been smacked in the mouth. i got nothing but props for her because she's a d-1
